Rebuilding UP Diliman's Japanese Room

UP DILIMAN Japanese Room Rebuild

Last week, I got a message about the call for donations for the rebuilding of UP Diliman's Japanese Room. UP Diliman is a state university in the Philippines.

Please help us rebuild the Japanese Room of the UP Department of Linguistics. The Japanese Room was one of the many rooms in UP Diliman’s Faculty Center gutted by fire on April 1st. This room housed the Japanese Library and various Japanese cultural materials used in Japanese classes.
The Department is accepting donations of books, learning resources, and cultural materials on the Japanese language as well as other Asian languages (e.g. Chinese, Korean, Bahasa, and Thai) and linguistics.
For those in Japan, please get in touch with:
Merriam Villegas
Alumna, UP Department of Linguistics

For those in the Philippines, please get in touch with:
Michael Manahan
Instructor, UP Department of Linguistics

You may also get in touch with the UP Department of Linguistics at Room 400-C, Palma Hall, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City or e-mail lingg@kssp.upd.edu.ph.


Visualizing A Crazy Kawaii Dream

One random night, I received a message from ChiChi with a photo attachment. She sent me this beautiful illustration of what she envisions Kawaii PH Store / Kawaii Philippines' headquarters would look like. My eyes really went like this @___@ after loading the image! Thanks ChiChi for producing this! This illustration shall always remind me of the goal that we must altogether work hard on (like what we are doing right now!). ^^ Also, I'm posting this on my blog as my way of calling the universe to help us reach the ultimate dream. Hi universe, we're here again! *waves fervently*

I am so glad to be with this circle of big dreamers! Looking back, we've really come a long, long way from not knowing how to expand our community in the Philippines or how to even make such noise locally and even globally. Now, we're thinking so much ahead. So much ahead that telling this dream to other people would probably earn a few (????) question marks and puzzled faces. This make take years, or even a decade, or we don't know when.. but one thing is for sure, we'll get there somehow. I'm positive.

I don't have the funds right now. We're also struggling in our own ways and we have many other life priorities..  and this is why we are finding ways and solutions on how to convert these wishful dreams to realities. *fight desu*
